"The more I learn the more I know there is to know", adapted from Socrates

"Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth", Albert Einstein

"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence", Carl Sagan.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution". Albert Einstein

"Our aim as scientists is objective truth; more truth, more interesting truth, more intelligible truth. We cannot reasonably aim at certainty. Once we realize that human knowledge is fallible, we realize also that we can never be completely certain that we have not made a mistake" Karl Popper

"Passion (in any argument) is inversely proportional to the amount of real information available", Gregory Benford.

"Scientific beliefs are supported by evidence, and they get results. Myths and faiths are not and do not" Richard Dawkins

"If we are uncritical we shall always find what we want: we shall look for, and find, confirmations, and we shall look away from, and not see, whatever might be dangerous to our pet theories", Karl Popper

"... there is no need to know the truth of the actual matters, but one merely needs to have discovered some device of persuasion which will make one appear to those who do not know to know better than those who know", Socrates in Gorgias

"It has become almost a cliché to remark that nobody boasts of ignorance of literature, but it is socially acceptable to boast ignorance of science and proudly claim incompetence in mathematics", Richard Dawkins

There is an almost universal tendency, perhaps an inborn tendency, to suspect the good faith of a man who holds opinions that differ from our own opinions..." Karl Popper

"I do not attempt to convert my opponents - I aim at converting their audience", David Goodman (DGG), Wiki Administrator

"I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see a universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws, but only dimly understand these laws", attributed to Albert Einstein.

My Favorite Fathers of Modern Science and Giordano Bruno, the First Martyr of Science

"As long as I have any choice in the matter, I shall live only in a country where civil liberty, tolerance, and equality of all citizens before the law prevail", Albert Einstein
